Regional Workshop on strategic directions for establishing integrated management systems for regulatory bodies

Management systems are recognized by the IAEA and its Member States as one of the most important elements of facilities and activities and of the regulatory body and other government organization to achieve the fundamental safety objective and the objective of a State’s nuclear security regime. The relevance of an effective management for safety is acknowledged in the Fundamental Safety Principles 1 and 3. Likewise, Essential Element 12 of a State’s Nuclear Security Regime acknowledges the importance of an integrated management system to contribute to the sustainability of the nuclear security regimen.


The management system of a regulatory body has three main purposes: i) ensure that the responsibilities assigned to the regulatory body are properly discharged, ii) maintain and improve the performance of the regulatory body by means of the planning, control and supervision of its regulatory duties, iii) foster and support a culture for safety and for nuclear security in the regulatory body through the development and reinforcement of leadership as well as good attitudes and behaviour in relation to safety and nuclear security on the part of individuals and teams.


This workshop aims to foster the establishment of integrated management systems in regulatory bodies in accordance with IAEA publications for safety and nuclear security. It targets countries participating in the phase II of the Regulatory Infrastructure Development Project for Africa.


The workshop includes of 20 lectures, 2 experience sharing sessions, 5 practical exercises and 2 debates. It will be delivered using hybrid modality from 29 May to 3 June 2022 in the VIC, Vienna, Austria.
